I just saw this thread, count me in. I managed to make 3 for the 2010 Special Olympics, and I have some of the red yarn left. I will start on them as soon as I finish the wedding afghan I am working on. Thanks for posting the link.

I am going to make at least one, too. Have to finish project for the fair first, though.

I'm a new crocheter, and this sounds like a good first charity project. I'm a teacher, and I have a special place in my heart for the life skills kids.

Thanks for all the offers of help! I have received approx. 140 scarves and we need 2,500, so every scarf is very appreciated!

Does it have to be RH cherry red yarn for this project? I have some Caron One Pound red (I think it is called Scarlet) that is pretty close in color to the RH Cherry Red. Would this be acceptable?

Thank-you for your inquiry. Yes, the scarves need to be made out of the Red Heart Super Saver Cherry Red and White. This ensures uniformity for the athletes. Happy Crocheting!

Yay! We're up to 210 out of 2,500 scarves so far. I can hear those hooks flying! Thanks to everyone who has sent scarves so far and those of you who are working on them as we speak!

This was a fun project last time round, though I was a bit disappointed that it was never clear to me what happened to all the extra? The blue and white from Idaho? I think that was the state from memory. I like to be sure items really go to people in need and think they got so many more then they needed they were given to everyone? Anyone else remember the situation? I want to help, but if it's a case of a scarf going to homeless or a cancer victim vs extra given out to anyone, would like to know?

Can someone fill me in so I don't need to read all 5 pages here?

THANKS

That's why we keep a running total so we don't get so many excess scarves. All the information for the project can be found in the very first post of this thread. Thanks for your inquiry. Happy Crocheting.

Well, we're up to 265 scarves now! Wow! I am posting Thank-You's on the main webpage, but if you send scarves and you're from Crochetville, just enclose a little note or let me know on here and I'll post a Thank-You on here as well. Thanks to all of you for your help making scarves!

Sorry to be so long getting back to you Vanessa. Thanks for your response. Been out of town, will go back and read your first post, so that brings me to one more question. Is the counting here the only group making scarves?

 

Please understand I'm not trying to be negative, I think it's a worthy cause.
